Paintings with PERSONATALIE!

I am Natalie VonRaven, acrylic painter and artisan hailing from Alberta, Canada. I was born and raised in Calgary, amid the chaos of the big city but relocated to the quiet town of High River because, honestly, housing costs were significantly less ridiculous.

I like to create - I am compelled to create, and do so with just about anything. Tho I am, perhaps, best known for my hi-contrast paintings & characters. The bold, dramatic features and big gleaming eyes are a favorite style of mine which has been evolving since my youth. Faces with PERSONATALIE!

It all started in junior high school when I decided (much to the dismay of my parents and teachers) that artistic pursuits were far more important than a conventional education. So instead of studying quadratic equations, applied physics, and long-dead whomevers, I doodled. On everything. Eventually, I decided to forsake a life of stability, corporate sponsored health benefits, cushy retirement packages & regular paycheques for a one of motherhood, critter rearing, pandemonium, & art!

I am mostly self-taught (having derived very little from my academic art classes) but I am constantly inspired by other artists, creatives, nature, music & movies. Over the past few years hundreds of paintings have oozed from the depths of my imagination and onto the canvas. Thanks to my stupendous, "ridiculously good-looking" family, friends, fans and supporters, most of these aforementioned objets d'art have made their way into homes and private collections across the globe. Over 300 paintings in 7 countries!
